Gary Ploski and Marty Lang really showed us what it's like to engage a community. In the end, I was not only a backer on The Rising Star Movie but also a fan and a friend. I'm thrilled to see this project move ahead and I feel fortunate to have been there from the beginning. Congratulations to all who helped start this and to those that will carry it forward.
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Way to make us all proud. Karen and I are really excited for you and to see this project come to life.
Was great to hear mention of your project today on LA Talk Radio w/David Branin and Karen Warden. Good luck and God speed =)
Hey everyone - I upped my pledge today because Mario Giovannucci of Bristol (and the father of our producer, Matt Giovannucci!) wrote me a check for $50 to pledge toward the movie. Thanks so much to Mario!
Hey everyone - I upped my pledge today because George Story, of Broad Brook, Connecticut, gave me $28 in cash yesterday and said to me "I want a DVD. Good luck, kid." Thanks so much to George!
I would really love to see Alyza's chaacter as a vegan. So much else about her points to this as the direction that her life would go in (and you have the most perfect expert to guide you on the development (Ali of course). Can't wait to seewhat happens!!
Marty - I'm so happy for you to see this project take off. I just can't wait to see the movie.
Melissa, Bill, Alexa, and Peggy... Big thanks to you all for your tremendous support. Hi-fives to you all!
Just so everyone knows, the reason I'm pledging is because people in Connecticut have actually come up to me and given me money for the movie, without actually going through the Kickstarter process. So I'm going to list them as the donations come in ...
Alexa Simmons came over to my house today and gave me $50! Thanks so much Alexa!
Peggy O'Leary sent me a check for $52 on Monday! Thanks so much Peggy!

Gary annoyed me until I supported this. Best wishes!
A case of the Mondays?! No way! Thank you everyone who has supported us financially and web 2.0 style.
